It’s been exactly a month since I haven’t been able to write or post anything, and honestly, my fingers and my mind have been itching to get back to my blog! So, I think it’s safe to say that I’m #BringingBackTheSunshine!
You know, the world is gradually moving towards the side of ‘hate’ being heavier than the side of ‘love’- hearing about celebrated artists like Kate Spade’s and Anthony Bourdain’s suicides have only made me more certain of this belief. Whether it is self-hatred or the insensitive judgmental hatred from the world around us, it’s definitely there, and it’s definitely killing us inside. Bit by bit; one beautiful person after another.
And as a psychologist, I think I understand why people have begun to trust less, love less, believe less. Because to hate someone, well, to hate is the easiest thing in the world. It does not take much to hate someone, and to hate someone who has hurt you, that’s just a no-brainer, right?
To foster the feelings of negativity towards someone is so so so much easier than investing your mind, body, and soul into loving that someone.
Because it takes strength to love.
It takes courage to love.
It takes a whole lot of pure, unadulterated, honest, selfless piece of your innermost soul to love.
But hate, hate is easy.
Don’t let your scale tip towards the side of the evil of hate, only because you are too lazy to love.
Lots of love,
